Strange day today. Some very good comments, some very bad comments. Not a lot in the middle. In typical Monday fashion, Deadspin was light on content. But hey, at least Sidespin had enough nightmarish meta-rambling to keep you entertained through an 8-hour workday. Let's get to it.
Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting
Favorites, in no particular order:
Today featured a really nice bait-and-switch dialogue joke by marmol heater. The visual of Carson Palmer quarterbacking on a rascal scooter in a New York Jets uniform in 2016 is very intriguing. Two stars.
I didn't expect to find much to laugh at in the fucking guitar solo story, but DougExeter delivered a criminally underappreciated John Cage joke. For anyone who doesn't understand the reference, here's a video of the song being performed in concert. This is your Comment of the Day. Three stars.
pkellen2313 started the day off with an excellent Jay Cutler vaccination wordplay-joke. This is a fine example of using a bit of information about someone to comedic effect. Three stars.
Total Fucking Duds:
I usually let run-of-the-mill sports talk radio hot takes go, especially when they're concise. I don't know why you came to the Deadspin comments section with your 350-word, 4-point plan to improve the Chicago Bears, PauloB, but could you try to make it funny next time?
This photo and quote from Parks & Rec is not a joke, eric caldwell. You're better than this. The Melo hat story had so much joke potential, and it was sadly squandered.
Why you don't read good, DumbNozzlePutin?
Stupid jokes can be good jokes. This stupid joke by HairMetalHenry is a bad stupid joke.
The expression "my mister" is either a brilliantly stupid way to begin a comment, or was an autocorrect error. Either way, this gem by __kath is disorienting. I expected it to end with "and now I make $4700 a week working from home."
That's it. If I missed anything, please share it below.
